They however said that there is not ample evidence yet to verify that the coronavirus can be transmitted to pets.
 
The dog did not exhibit any symptoms, it was noted.
 
The Hong Kong Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said it will conduct further clinical tests to confirm if the dog had been infected with the coronavirus or if the samples were only the result of environmental contamination.
 
The AFCD issued a statement to the media, "At present, the AFCD does not have evidence that pet animals can be infected ... or can be a source of infection to people."
 
The authorities will quarantine the dog for a period of time ad also conduct further studies on it.
 
The WHO or World Health Organisation website says so far there has been no evidence that companion pets can be infected with the coronavirus.
 
If further tests confirm that the dog was indeed infected or vice versa, it could have numerous implications including the fact that the new coronavirus could be evolving at a faster rate than originally thought.
 
(To date Hong Kong has 93 confirmed coronavirus cases and 2 deaths so far but hundreds of suspected cases that are being investigated or pending testing.)
